My vision is this:
To co-create a world where we remember that the evolution of our consciousness is reliant on the thriving of the natural world, and that the thriving of the natural world is reliant on the evolution of our consciousness.
This vision is being offered through a collection of workshops, trainings, immersions, rituals, ceremonies and rights of passage all designed to help us and humanity to do the work of soul reclamation, to remember our deep soul interconnectedness with all life as sacred.
We need to awaken once again the ancient language of our souls longing, to transform our current experience of feeling lost, disconnected, and collectively young in our consciousness to one of inner maturity, both in our hearts and in our minds, as this is what our worlds needs right now above all.
We cannot be in service to our world, to this Earth until we have gone through our own initiation into our own maturity – this maturity is not age related, it is an awakening in to our experience of our aliveness and interconnectedness and from there taking action form our love to transform our world, our communities, our governments, to live from a place of respect and devotion and Love.
“We think we are human beings trying to have a spiritual experience but in reality we are spiritual being trying to have a human experience” Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
What on Earth is going on ?
There is an invitation on offer to us at this time, to enquire more deeply within ourselves as to what needs to change in our devastated world, and how might we be a part of that change ?
We are the nature we live in and depend on.
Our human suffering arises from our belief that we are somehow separate from the source of life itself. Disconnected in this way, we become destructive towards ourselves, each other and nature. We experience feelings of emptiness/disconnection that we then seek to avoid by numbing ourselves, by accumulating material wealth, living mainly in the mind, developing addictions, inflicting violence on ourselves and others. We take and take and are giving very little back.
Nature is the body of God.
The natural world can awaken us to the remembering that we and all life is sacred . Every blade of grass embodies the sacred, a living expression of Love. We need to marry our own inner wild nature with the wild nature outside. This requires us to reconnect with our soul’s knowing and to the sacredness of life.
“All things are connected like the blood that unites us.
We did not weave the web of life,
We are merely a strand in it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.” Chief Seattle
The body of love
Love is what we are and awareness bring us to that state.
For thousands of years humanity has primarily lived in a paradigm of distorted power. That paradigm is expressed as a dominant masculine and a repressed feminine. Its time is coming to an end.
The process of changing this can seem frightening to our disconnected self, especially if we try to navigate it alone. The transition we are in needs to be made collectively. This calls each of us to live more in our heart, to listen to its guidance as we traverse this new unfamiliar experience together.
Divine Love is awareness and energy recognising each other.
The journey back to wholeness is to realise that we ARE the love we are seeking outside of ourselves. This is the foundation stone of the work and it is fundamental if we want to be able to truly receive and give love from a place of limitless abundance in ourselves rather than coming to others as beggars with an empty bowl.
It is through reconnecting to Love within us that we awaken to the larger field of Divine Love, the very fabric of the universe. All life is interconnected, in this way we need each other to remember ourselves to this larger field. This is why working in a group context is such a powerful catalyst for accelerating the process of individual and collective transformation.
It begins with bringing awareness to ourselves,first learning to love ourselves. From this place we can extend love to others. We can also then align ourselves with our higher purpose, living from our centre with a clarity about our own place in the web of life.
This is a very down-to-earth embodied path. It is not one that requires us to transcend this world but to be very much in the world.
“The love for my own self is inseparably connected with the love for any other human beings.” Erich Fromm
Relationship – the collective mirror
We need each other for our personal awakening and collective evolution.
Just by being truly who we are, we hold up a mirror to each other that shows where we have lost our way, forgotten or abandoned ourselves. In this way we can be a gift to each other.
The mirror might not always be a comfortable one but it is constant and always true if we can receive it, if we can truly look.
At this time on Earth we are being called to carve out new pathways of authentic empowered relating that goes beyond patriarchy and feminism .
Wild nature, wild bodies
Our bodies are nature, made of the 4 elements, earth, air, fire, water, as is all nature. Working directly with the body is an immediate way to reconnect ourselves.
Many of us have been taught that the body is not a wild free beautiful expression of nature but a machine to be used and abused, hence this is how we treat nature. What is happening in the environment is simply an external expression of the relationship with our own bodies.
When we feel the aliveness of the elements within us, and feel Love as an embodied experience – then we naturally connect to our physical beauty and sacredness from a deep inner experience.
We also awaken to the 5th element, that of spirit and so can allow fully the creative life force to move through it. When we do this we experience no separation to the web of life. It’s then a natural outcome to want to protect and connect to all life, for to harm ourselves is to harm all life.
Our sexual energy is a key fundamental aspect to living in our totality.
Our sexual energy in essence is our pure creative life force energy and a catalyst for life. When it is blocked, we feel disconnected and depleted. When it is fully alive in us we feel awake, creative and connected to the archetype of Lover as a vibration of vitality.
Our life begins out of the act of sexual union which is deeply connected to the erotic nature of the earth (the great mother earth from where all life is manifest) and in this way sex is intrinsically connected with the cycle of birth and death. Therefore by working consciously with sexuality we can also work consciously with our relationship to nature, birth, sex and death, the deepest human experiences that are a gateway to our ecstatic awakening.
If we were a tree our sexuality would be our roots. For the tree to truly flourish in its full potential the roots need to be strong and healthy. They need to go deep into the earth to be able to receive all they need.
In this way it is important that our sexuality is naturally flowing at its optimum, that we welcome and embrace it and release it from energetic blocks such as shame and guilt that result in its repression or destructive expression.
When energy and consciousness meet in sexual connection a gateway opens.
This gateway we can step through, and experience sexual union as an experience of divine ‘awakening’. Sacred sexuality is a term that describes this experience. Sacred sexual union does not arise from the use of any particular technique. It is the ingredients that create it, that of energy and consciousness within the larger field of Divine Love.
It’s time we saw sex as the truly sacred art that it is. A deep meditation, a holy communion and a dance with the force of creation.
